Let’s suppose every possible proposal author in every other RIR comes to the list to ask questions about compatibility … it will be a mess.


I will understand that if the text of any policy in ARIN is not clear enough for any “reader” (including an author of a possible proposal in other region), then it is fine to ask for clarifications about the interpretation to the staff and even the list, but I don’t think it is the case here, at least I’d no trouble to interpret “univocally” myself the ARIN policies regarding transfers.

John I do not understand why ARIN is being so inhospitable in this case. 

Obviously there is uncertainty and misunderstandings could be avoided if the discussion takes place in the open. Staff determinations also need to be accountable to the ARIN members and community.



Milton - 


I am fairly certain you did not understand my response, as the intent was not to be inhospitable but rather the precise opposite. 


While the normal process for this sort of activity would be for AFRINIC team to reach out for an assessment from ARIN staff, we are more than happy to accommodate discussion here on ppml…  


In fact, that is the reason for my questions back to the authors – to help elaborate how ARIN staff assesses these situations “out in the open” (as you put it), as that may also help others when working on similar types of proposals, as well as informing the ARIN community of our consideration process.
